When attempting to assist a loved one with clearing out and cleaning up their hoarding or gross filth mess, discretion and tact is key.
Despite the negative connotation brought by the spotlight of media attention, hoarding has really been studied only in the past two decades at most. There is much misunderstanding and stigma associated with the compulsive hoarding condition and what it entails. It is critical to remember that hoarders are very sensitive about their lifestyle and there are many factors that play a role in this. Whether its shame, denial or resistance to changes, they will often be determined to keep their lifestyle and will rebel against any changes brought by external factors.
While many of us have a messy garage, storage room or shed, there is a point at which things become not just frustrating and dangerous for the occupants, but also quite welcoming for a number of pests. Adding more clutter around your home increases your chance for pest infestation risk and hides their nests. Hoarding turns homes into dumps often littered with rotten, mouldy and rodent infested waste.
Attitude is Important When Assisting a Hoarding Clean Up
In most cases hoarders fear and dislike the judgment of others and for a good reason. For them this line of behaviour is something normal so you should try to understand that when you approach the subject matter.
Compulsive Hoarding is a Disorder
The underlying reasons for hoarding go beyond what people consider messiness as they have a psychological trigger that modifies what we consider a normal line of behaviour. The learned patterns of behaviour compulsive hoarders develop are nearly impossible to break and their reasons are both biological and psychological in nature.
Assisting With a Compulsive Hoarder Clean Up
Remember to ask questions about the things they want to keep and to offer compromises that cater to their disorder but at the same time allow them to move forward. This can be done by working out a system that catalogues and makes an inventory of their possessions. Always remember that even if something seems like trash to you it may hold significance for your loved one.
